GSDB recently announced the beta version of WebSub for submitting sequence data via WWW: http://www.ncgr.org/gsdb/WebSub.html
WebSub works with Mosaic and Netscape on Sun platforms and with Netscape for Mac and IBM users. Those without access to a forms-supporting Web browser can download applications via ftp.
BankIt, a new GenBank(TM) forms approach, is available for use with Netscape for UNIX, Macintosh, and PCs; Mosaic for UNIX; and MacWeb for Macintosh. BankIt access: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov, questions: firstname.lastname@example.org or 301/496-2475.
GenBank release 87.0 is available via ftp to ncbi.nlm.nih.gov in the genbank directory. The ASN.1 version is in the ncbi-asn1 directory.
EBI and DDBJ also add data to the international collection of DNA sequences, with all four sites sharing data. An article on sequence databases appeared in HGN 6(3), 1-6 (September 1994) and is also accessible via the Home Page: http://www.ornl.gov/hgmis/

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
